I do not agree with that, I don't like that, but since I am a sociologist,
this is my professional observation of the problem.

There is still plenty of room for technical solutions.
Some kind of virtual identity plus slashdot style karma.

For wikipedia tor-users would start with karma=-1, only be allowed one edit a day, and the edits would only be visible to logged in users (i.e. not search engines), that choose to view TOR edits. After some positive mod-points, the user would be promoted to a first class user. There could be conflicts in which case karma<0 edits would be discarted.

And it should be done in WikiMedia and similar software instead of every wiki.
